“The Carter-Weinstein project will be a docuseries currently titled “Race,” which will give look into systemic injustices in America. The six-episode series will weave together documentary, animation and archival footage. It will delve into crime and punishment, wealth inequality, the role of social media, activism and family. Present-day stories will be captured via footage of a diverse mix of people from all walks of life in cities across America, from immigrants to first-generation Americans and beyond.” — Variety

When to watch: “Race” will air globally on the National Geographic Channel in 171 countries and 45 languages in early 2018. In January 2018, National Geographic Magazine will devote an entire issue to the subject of race to tout the show.

Take action: Organizations that work on racial inequality can use the show to engage audiences and spark needed conversations about crime and punishment, wealth inequality, and the roles of social media and activism. While the series doesn’t premiere until 2018, groups can begin to think about how they might incorporate the show into their campaigns.
